Agnus Castus (chasteberry) - a.k.a. Vitex!

Well...I sent my DH out to H&B again today (they should know him by name now! hehe) to get me some Angus Castus (Vitex). It is well known for balancing hormones during the menstrual cycle in women who are estrogen dominant and is used by many to help aid in fertility during TTC. I think this could be what my 'problem' might be. I think I might have low progesterone (and as a result - too much estrogen) - I have a lot of signs that point to this. These things should be balanced. Low progesterone might even be linked to the cause of some miscarriages. So of course, paranoid me will want to make sure I can prevent all the nasty stuff from happening if I can!
So here goes...add it to my pic n' mix batch! hehe
